How to Prepare for NABARD Grade-A 2021 Exam in 1 Month?

Qualifying Sections:

I. Reasoning:

  • Despite the fact that this portion only comprises 20 questions, it might still jeopardize your chances of passing the exam. While the sectional cut-off for this section is extremely low, the benefit to those who perform well in the section is significant.
  • According to last year's pattern, the puzzles in this part will be lengthy, but they can be solved with a diligent approach. For each problem in last year's paper, there were 3-5 questions.
  • The other important topic which is most likely to appear in the examination is the questions of syllogism, inequality.

II. Quantitative Aptitude:

  • This section contains 20 questions. It is very important for anyone who wants to clear this exam to memorize the percentage-fraction conversion. It will help you a lot during the live exam.
  • You should focus on easier chapters like simplification-approximation, number series, quadratic equation, average, percentage, partnership, mensuration.
  • If you complete these chapters and focus on DI, then you can easily qualify for this section.

III. Computer Knowledge:

  • The computer knowledge component is quite difficult for people who do not have a computer background. The 20 questions in this section range in difficulty from easy to difficult, and while they are straightforward, they cover and test a wide variety of computer skills.
  • Trick: This is a two-edged sword: if you have considerable computer knowledge, you can do well here; however, if you only have a rudimentary understanding of computers, you should stick to the most basic of competitive examinations.

IV. English Language:

  • You will get 30 questions from this section
  • Most of the questions will be based on either vocabulary, comprehension, or basic grammar rules.
  • So you must be thorough with all the basic grammar rules.
  • Cover at least 5-10 new words every day from any reputed newspaper or book or online resource.

Important Topics:

  1. Cloze test
  2. Reading comprehension
  3. Error spotting
  4. Para jumble
  5. Match the column
  6. Subject-verb agreement

Merit Sections:

V. General Awareness:

  • This section contains 20 questions and is primarily comprised of key current events relating to agriculture, social issues, and rural development. There will very certainly be a slew of queries based on government programs. 
  • This section can also include several banking-related words.

Trick: Attempting the questions is usually done using the elimination approach. The majority of the questions are designed such that anyone with a rudimentary understanding of the subject may eliminate the incorrect answers and arrive at the correct answer. A score of 10-12 is the unstated minimum requirement for passing the paper.

Practice static gk here: Static GA

Practice banking awareness here: Banking GK

VI. Agriculture and Rural Development:

  • The ARD area of the paper is usually regarded as the toughest.
  • Because this section is objective in nature, applicants must pay attention to the tone of the questions.
  • Even in this case, the golden rule is to avoid making educated predictions. If you successfully answer 25-30 questions, you can consider this section to be good.

VII. Economic and Social Issues:

  • The ESI segment has a close link to rural India's general awareness and concerns. This area covers any activities that have the potential to have an impact on the social structure, thus it's crucial to put what you learned in the current affairs section to good use.
  • The attempt expectations for this portion are the same as for the ARD segment.
  • While the exam is well-known, it lacks any distinguishing characteristics, and if a candidate studies well, there is minimal risk of them failing to meet their objectives.

Expert Tips for NABARD Grade-A 2021

  1. We propose studying the basic chapters of ESI and ARD throughout the weekdays and using weekends to cover and revise current events and practice Quants, Reasoning, and English questions.
  2. Indices, Important Schemes should be covered from January 2021.
  3. Attempt 3 full-length mock tests per week.
  4. Do not forget to analyze the mock tests on the day itself.
  5. Give special emphasis to merit sections.
  6. Do not take lightly the qualifying sections.
